Foundation Hosted Fifth Annual Callier Cares Luncheon

The fifth annual Callier Cares Luncheon raised over $200,000 to benefit patients in need through the Callier Care Fund. We appreciate honorary chairmen Michal and Loyd Powell and luncheon chair Angie Kadesky for making this event a tremendous success.

Stuart Bumpas, a prominent attorney and esteemed community advocate, was honored with the 2016 Ruth and Ken Altshuler Callier Care Award. The annual award is presented to an individual or group who has contributed significantly to the betterment of the community and to advancing the care of patients with communication disorders.
